Dacor 30" Sealed Burner Gas Cooktop DCT305S

The Distinctive Gas Cooktop does more than enhance the look of countertops and cabinetry, it brings a smile to home chefs as they prepare every meal. Both the 36- and 30-inch models feature professional performance, innovative features and the most cooking power available - 54,000 BTU for the 30" model and 60,000 BTU for the 36" model. Two sizes mean you never have to compromise style and performance whether remodeling your entire kitchen or simply replacing your existing cooktop. From their exclusive SimmerSear Burner for the ultimate in precision and control, to their unique PermaClean finish that retains a permanently beautiful surface even after years of cleaning, every detail of the Distinctive Gas Cooktop has been carefully considered to provide you with a lifetime of enjoyment. Craftsmanship, plus style, is what makes Dacor's Distinctive 30" gas cooktop a kitchen amenity that not only enhances counter-tops and cabinetry, but brings a smile to the chef with its professional performance and features. Over-sized pots and pans transfer easily from one continuous platform grate to another. The Illumina Indicator Lights offer a touch of Dacor's signature flame-blue to the controls, ensuring a safe cooking experience as well as an attractive and eye-catching design. It's their passion. It's Dacor.

Suspect quality
Posted:7/31/14
Pros: liked the looks, cooks ok (lp)
Cons: knobs 'flop' around
"Had the cooktop installed/connected to LP. Was excited to get it since reviews on this seemed quite high. Unfortunately, ALL the knobs were 'floppy'. Contacted Dacor, who escalated it to 'engineering' and said 'that's the way it's designed. Hmmmm, that's funny, because if that's the way it's 'designed', I would have expected the 4 different Dacor floor models I looked at at high end appliance stores would have been the same. Needless to say, after months and months of back and forth, we agreed the cooktop would be returned. Guess it's on to Viking."

Excellent Coooktop
Posted:11/5/13
Pros: value performance appearance
Cons: grates chip easily be careful if you have granite
"This gas cooktop is professional grade at a great value. I find it interesting when people post a less-than-stellar review based solely on their transition from gas to electric. If you have cooked with gas extensively, you will appreciate the wide ranging burners and the beaded surface. The surface is easily cleaned compared to traditional stainless. There are a couple of reviews that comment on the center burner as if it were meant to be used in conjunction with all 4 other burners... this isn't the case, it's to be used for specialty/single burner cooking where quick boiling or ultra low simmer is required. (think canning, soups, sauces, etc.). This is a big accomplishment for a 30" cooktop. Enjoy!"

A great professional cooktop
Posted:3/29/13
Pros: better and larger cooking surface
"I love the look and operations of my new cooktop. I replaced a 4-burner cooktop with this and there's no comparison. The top fits in the same 30 in space but the Dacor looks much bigger. The middle burner is my favorite. I hate I waited so long to replace the old top."

Dacor Gas Cooktop
Posted:9/3/12
Pros: great gas cooktop!!!!
"I could not wait to get back to cooking with gas. This is a classy cooktop and so easy to use. Fits perfect which was a little concern but it fit great in a 30' space. Highly recommend this product and AJ Madison. They are so professional to work with and I save tax and shipping. Will continue to order from them for rental properties."
